Can someone recommend some really awesome chalk?  We have the prang ambrite chalk.. and while it's OK.. it's just OK ;)  They're buttery and nice and all.. yet somewhat mundane. I'd love a variety of colors to blend together on the chalkboard- anyone know where I might find them?

 

Expensive is alright (sigh) so long as it reflects the quality!

Magic Cabin offers chalk that is very vivid.  I think they call it Flipper chalk.  They have big ones and thin ones, depending on your preference.  Decent pricing, too. http://www.magiccabin.com/colored-chalkboard-chalks_p194.html  One note, it does break easily, which is to be expected of chalks and pastels, in general (my art teacher best friend tells me).  winky.gif

Yep.  I usually break them up when I get them.. makes shading easier than having to use an entire stick at once!
